BBC3 channels

BBC3 HD (163) has now been removed from the EPG.

BBC3 SD (106) remains as a link to the BBC iPlayer (TiVO customers only).

If you have any recordings from BBC3 on V+ or TiVO, make sure you either watch or copy them within the next 3 months.

Re: BBC3 channels

Usually it is three months for recordings availability after a channel closes. However in this case recordings from BBC Three will continue to be available until the 4th October 2016.

Re: BBC3 channels

Thanks for confirming Ben. Thought I saw something about an extended period.

Re: BBC3 channels

My TIVO box decided to record the static BBC3 screen as a suggestion, it had managed almost 4 hours when I stopped and deleted it, but then it immediately started a new recording.

The only way to stop it was to down thumb x 3 the program.

Re: BBC3 channels

The channel is maintaining the metadata that allows customers that still have recordings from BBC3 to watch them. As explained earlier in this thread, customers have until 4th October to watch their recordings, & then the metadata (& the channel carrying it) will be reallocated.

Re: BBC3 channels

The placeholder & metadata for BBC3 have now been removed.

Any recordings you have from BBC3 will now no longer play.

Re: BBC3 channels

Thanks for the heads up even though I did get this too late to be able to watch my episodes of Bad Education I had.
I see it is on Netflix so I better watch them before my 6 month freebie ends.
